So When Is Galileo III Opening Up? One Reader’s Story.

According to a photo that the chef posted on his Facebook page, Roberto Donna was supposed to open Galileo III last week. WaPo's J. Freedom du Lac followed up with some timely Tweets: first about Galileo's certificate of occupancy from DCRA, and then about its pending opening last Thursday.

As of today, there's still no Donna resurrection. One Y&H reader forwarded a conversation she had with a Galileo reservationist this afternoon:

Just tried to make a lunch reservation at Galileo III tomorrow...and the reservationist said, "We're not open for lunch tomorrow."

Me: Oh, could I book a table for dinner instead?

Her: We're not open tomorrow.

Me: What about later in the week?

Her: We're looking at next week.

Me: Okay, thanks, bye.

Just as a back-up, I called the reservation desk and was told that they don't know exactly when the restaurant will open yet. Maybe this weekend, maybe next week.
